Emirates Hand Baggage Allowance

Generally, the amount of cabin baggage you may bring depends on which service class you are flying.

First Class and Business Class customers are permitted two pieces of carry-on baggage: one briefcase plus either one handbag or one garment bag. The briefcase may not exceed 45 x 35 x 20 cm; the handbag may not exceed 55 x 38 x 20 cm; the garment bag can be no more than 20 cm thick when folded. The total combined weight of both pieces may not be more than 12 kg.

Economy Class customers are permitted one piece of carry-on baggage that may not exceed 55 x 38 x 20 cm and must weigh no more than 7 kg.


Emirates Hold Baggage Allowance

Economy Class customers can check in 30 kg, Business Class travellers 40 kg and if you are flying First Class you can travel with 50 kg of checked baggage. These weights do not apply to itineraries involving USA, Canada and Brazil.

Emirates Excess Baggage Allowance

You have to purchase additional weight if required which can be done at the airport or you can save 15% if you pre-buy it online.

Emirates Delayed Baggage Information

If you cannot find your baggage at the terminal, the first step is to approach the baggage services desk at the airport. This can usually be found in the customs hall, near the baggage claim area.

There, you will need to fill out a Property Irregularity Report. This report will contain a unique reference number, which enables Emirates to trace your baggage as quickly and efficiently as possible.



Emirates Banned and Restricted Items

For a full list of banned and restricted items visit the Emirates website in the baggage section.

Emirates Liquids Restrictions

- All liquids, gels and aerosols, pastes, lotions, creams, drinks and other items of similar consistency must be in containers with a capacity no greater than 100 ml. Those carried in containers larger than 100 ml will not be accepted, even if the container is only partially filled.

- These containers must be placed in a transparent re-sealable plastic bag of a maximum capacity not exceeding one litre. Larger bags or bags that are non-sealable, such as fold-over sandwich bags, are not allowed.

- The containers must fit comfortably within the plastic bag, which is to be completely closed.

- You will need to present the plastic bag for visual examination at the security screening point. Only one bag per customer will be permitted.

- Exemptions will be made for medications, baby milk or foods, and special dietary requirements, but you will need to show an appropriate means of verifying the nature of these items.

Emirates Sporting Equipment Policies

In addition to your checked baggage allowance, you may also check in one set of golf clubs and one pair of golf shoes free of charge in any class of service on any Emirates flight.

Other sports equipment is subject to normal excess baggage charges if it exceeds your baggage allowance. Some items, such as ski equipment, may be subject to additional charges. You can use their baggage allowance calculator to see exactly how much baggage you can check on your flight without charge and to calculate your excess baggage charges.
